Sealing the Deal: Making a Compelling Case for Funding with Private Foundations (Webinar)

February 11, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Did you know that 90% of private foundations don’t have a website? Join us to discover, locate, and approach potential funders while making a compelling case for funding. Dreanna Belden from UNT Libraries’ Portal to Texas History will discuss resources for identifying potential funders, as well as strategies and best practices for approaching those funders. Learn how to craft your application for the greatest impact with concrete examples for a strong narrative that will connect with donors.

Dreanna Belden, Assistant Dean for External Relations, has been with the UNT Libraries since 2003. Her interests involve working with museums, libraries, genealogy societies and archives to place historic and cultural materials online. She’s presented nationally and internationally about user studies for digital libraries, including at Library of Congress.

She’s served on the Council of the Texas Association of Museums, 2011-19, and is a Past-President.
